Dead tired last night I automatically clicked "Install" when I saw the Safari download in updates thinking it was just the usual security fix, etc. Later when I launched Safari to get on the net I was horrified to see a whole new interface! As the owner of a small struggling business the last thing I need in the middle of my season is a new interface to learn. What is the easiest way for me to dump this new version of Safari and reinstall the old version from my SuperDuper backup?

Thanks,
Win

There isn't an easy way to do this without a full restore, Win: Safari has a lot of bits and pieces all over the place...

Thanks for the input but I guess this means I am stuck with the new version of Safari as I have no desire to risk a full restore at this time of year. Has Bill Gates managed to get control of Apple?

Best,
Win

Sometimes these UI changes seem a bit arbitrary - but it's mostly the same, Win.

Wow, I'm surprised you see it as a whole new interface. The differences between Safari 3 and Safari 4 don't seem that drastic to me. It might even take you less time to get familiar with Safari 4 than trying to recover Safari 3. :)

Give it time!

Safari 4 is way faster than the older version.

Took me a couple of hours to get use to the minor UI changes, but I would never go back to the old version now. 4 is a lot better browser. :)
